Agenda Item #23

F-5. Purchasing Bids, RFPs, RFQs, Sales and Services Agreements


At the request of schools or departments, the Office of Purchasing Services sends out requests for bids and tabulates the bids from vendors.  Committees or individuals review the tabulated bids and make one of three recommendations: (1) that the low bid be accepted, (2) that a non-low bid be approved, or (3) that all bids be rejected, due to cost or not meeting specifications.  If a non-low bid is recommendated, justification must be provided by the persons reviewing the bids to ensure that the best product for the lowest cost is purchased.

Attached are summaries and/or recommendations for Bid Awards, RFPs, RFQs, and Sales and Services Agreements.  Detailed information, including tabulation of each bid can be reviewed in the School Board Office or in the Office of Purchasing Services.
